نقل تقرير لصحيفة “الاندبندنت” البريطانية أقوال لعدد من الشهود العيان على احتراق عقار “جرينفل تاور” ، حيث أكد الشهود المذكورين أنه لولا استيقاظ المسلمين للسحور لما تنبه أحد للحريق .

وقال شهود عيان إنهم سمعوا صافرات الإنذار ، بيد أن السكان المسلمين كانوا أول من حذروا من وجود حريق لاستيقاظهم للسحور في الوقت الذي كان الحي ينام بأكلمه بعد منتصف الليل.

وأضافت الصحيفة: “المسلمون أول من وصلوا إلى مكان الحريق وساعدوا بشكل كبير في إخراج الناس من العقار .

وقال “أندريه باروزو” البالغ من العمر 33 سنة في تصريحات للصحيفة: “المسلمون أدوا دورًا كبيرًا في منع ازدياد الكارثة ، كل من رأيتهم في موقع الحادث يساعدون الناس كانوا مسلمين “.

وأضاف: “بعضهم كان يبحث عن أقاربه الموجودين بالعقار ، لكن البقية الأخرى قدموا الطعام والشراب للمصابين
